Ah, 1.16's source doesn't properly find dsound.lib in the SDK because 
it's in the x86/x64 sub-folder. The current source in Git fixes that. 
You can copy this into openal-soft's cmake/ folder:
then cmake should find DSound.

I'm not sure about that error. OpenAL Soft uses Qt 4.8, so if you have 
5.0, for example, it probably won't find it correctly. The specific 
message seems to indicate it didn't find a usable qmake.
